Possum Rag was respectfully dedicated to Mr F. E. Miles. This piece is a full hundred bars of ragtime mayhem. They do not get any more syncopated and they do not get anymore ragged! This recorder adaptation is rare in that every voice is fully occupied and meticulous tonguing and accuracy are musts to ensure an authentic performance. Its form is ABACDE with a 4-bar introduction in the recorder players' favourite keys having 4 and 5 flats. All-in-all a fantastic rag, a joy to listen to and to perorm.
Possum Rag was published by O.K. Houck Piano Co., Memphis, Tennessee, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
